Emerald crab caught and ate clownfish? WTF?!
Had in tank 2 small clown fish(about 1.5 inches each), a yellow clown goby, a cleaner shrimp and a few snails. And an emerald crab. When I went to bed last night all fish were healthy and happy. No signs of illness or stress in tank. Tank is cycled, water parameters great, etc.
I woke up this morning and one of the clowns was missing without a trace. Finally was able to spot the emerald crab eating him in a cave.
How common is this? It's the last thing I was expecting. Crab has been great so far. Leaves the corals alone, seems happy eating the algae wafers I throw in from time to time.
